So, my church streams services to the internet. Currently using livestream.com but having some problems there so we may possibly move to a different service. ........Any thoughts here? How do other churches handle this? The church I came from previously used option 4, but we had a fairly compact mixer that let us get away with it.
Have you had time to read this article? http://www.prosoundweb.com/article/church_sound_putting_together_a_broadcast_mix/churchWith the option 2 the pastor mic will not be time synced with the room mic's possibly making him muddied by room and reverb?
Your situation is exactly the same as found when recording a service from the FOH mixer, which has been covered, ad infinitum, here at PSW and elsewhere over the years.Here is a very abbreviated list of rules that apply:1. You will not be able to mix properly for this second medium from within the space even if you have headphones. You need to be acoustically isolated.2. If mixing from the (same) FOH mixer and using aux sends, they must be configured as "post fader / post EQ"3. Attempting to have one person mix the house *and* also monitor (occasionally or continually) the record/broadcast/streaming mix is a really bad idea.Search here and elsewhere for "board mix", "recording live shows", "recording church services", "ambient microphones in recording", etc.The better articles and threads will provide details of what won't work and what will.....and why.
Another possibility is to combine a room mic at the rear of the hall with a delayed "board dub" to synch the two. Simply balance the two and you have a pretty fair, quick mix for the camera and the stream.Do it in real time, no post. It's a pretty simple job for a volunteer and requires only a room mic, delay synch capability and a small mix pad to combine the two.
Put the room mic at the front, near the speakers and you don't need the delay.Mac
